of the 9/11 attacks. i thought the country was facing a perilous moment and needed new leaders. i thought i could do my part in iraq and afghanistan. as i watched the drift in washington in the first two years of the obama administration, i thought again we face a perilous moment. this time it's the debt crisis we face. when our incumbent congressman announced his retirement i thought i could perhaps provide some of that leadership here in washington. i wanted come to washington and fight for the same freedoms here that i did in iraq and afghanistan. >> some of your first votes. you are being called what's part of the hell no caucus. my apologies for the language there but it wasn't mine. it's a cover story. do you accept that idea that that's the -- that's what your role is going to be in the republican conference? >> i don't think that'll be my role in the republican conference. but i think that the congress as a whole may need to say hell no to barack obama a little bit more. frankly i wish we might have had people here in 2009 and 2010 who were saying that as obama care was passed, as t
. they need protection, too. so president obama is determined us to a level below which we can function seriously there and i think it is a dangerous policy and i hope the congress looks at it and i hope president obama explains to the american people, honestly what he is doing, if he decided that, that is his prerogative and he should tell them that and explain why he ordered the surge bob mentioned, t 2, 3, 4 years ago and, sent an awful lot of kids over there, why he is getting out. >> chris: you talked about congress and the other subject, it comes as the president named a new national security team, and as i discussed with the senators, the most controversial pick is chuck hagel for defense secretary. here's what he said when he was named. >> i'll do my best for our country. for those i represent at the pentagon. and for all of our citizens. and, in president, i will always give you my honest and most informed counsel. >> chris: the question, bill, is what kind of counsel he'll give. we talked with the senators about his positions he has taken on israel and iran and what we didn't
's pretend that president obama is sitting in this chair. but pretend this is a private room -- let's pretend this is a private room. we need everyone out there to be quiet. if you were here along with the president, what are the two things you would tell him you need to make your state more competitive or all states more competitive? >> i think and i am an unabashed supporter of the president. i do not think all his policies are perfect but he has done a remarkable job of coming into an almost impossible situation in dealing with it as best you can. i can -- would look at the programs that have already embarked on the investment of making sure the government supports research at the deepest trouble and is providing not just grants but tax credits. the focus on making sure that we're building a culture of innovation. colorado is the last three years when there were no jobs anywhere, more 25-34 year-old came to call rudder than any other state in the country. -- colorado more than any other state in the country. we want to make sure they are employed in innovative companies that have an opport
. and this is turned that upside down. i think the obama administration just needs to go back and rewrite their exemptions here. and that would solve this problem. this could be handled administratively. so far the obama administration, president obama's administration has no desire to do that. that's why we're in court. bill: i understand you're looking for delay on this, but meantime us does the company pay the fine? >> they don't have to until the fine is assessed. i used to work with treasury. the question will be when will the actual fine be assessed against the company. that's where i think the department of justice and the department of labor should hold back and wait until the cases are adjudicated. bill: which reached -- >> most of the cases go in our favor, i understand the point you're making on that. we'll see whether or not this goes the same route. we reached out to the company. we hope to get the ceo on here real soon. jay, thank you for your time. >> thanks, bill. martha: well to colorado now. there are chaling details about the movie theater massacre that james holmes pla
's a signal from obama that he will pursue the course he pursued in the first term, to spend as much as he needs to establish the entitlement state and tax at a higher level to pay for it. jack lew is exactly the kind of liberal historically who has been his warrior on the front in negotiating on this. there is no indication that lew would go in any other direction, and it is clear to me that by this series of agreements obama has made, unlike added a first term more features people of independent stature, he has gone from a team of rivals to team of underlings. >> well, that is one nomination, but the nomination of former srepublican senator chuck hagel to head the department of defense has generated heat and light. zbigniew brzezinski, general john johns, brent scowcroft, as well as colin powell and former defense secretary bob gates. the senate has rejected only nine cabinet nominees to will chuck hagel be the 10th? >> i don't think so. i thought he would have an easier time that he has, but when all is said and done, there are lots of people from the bush administration, high-visibilit

on tackling gun violence in the united states. in a welcome message to his guests, biden vowed president obama would take meaningful action through executive order if need be. >> we are here today to deal with the problem that requires immediate action, urgent action. the president and i are determined to take action. this is not an exercise in a photo opportunity just ask you what your opinions are. we're reaching out to all parties on whatever side of this debate you fall. but the president is going to t. there are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. we have not decided what that is yet, that we are compiling it with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe is required. >> vice president said to me today with representatives of the national rifle association as well as gun retailers, including walmart. new york governor andrew cuomo has unveiled what he's billed as the toughest gun control legislation in the country in the aftermath of last month's newtown massacre in neighboring connecticut. in an impassi
. the vice president said that, yesterday, that president obama could use executive order to get some of these things done. does he need that to have universal background checks or to do something else that vice president biden said today they wanted to do, which was to ban those high-capacity magazines? >> reporter: that's what's fascinating. very much an about-face, erin. these two proposals that the vice president mentioned today could not be done through executive order, they have to be done through congress. somewhat of a different message coming out of the vice president today. these specific proposals would need to go through congress. >> thanks very much to john avalon. >>> former white house deputy press secretary bill burton and co-fonder of priorities usa, a pro-obama super pac, joins me along with tim carney. bill, the vice president came out yesterday and said, we're going to use executive order if we need to. that really riled a lot of people up. executive order, you guys aren't going to get it done, we're going to do it. we just heard john avalon say, look, those ideas
street journal." let me start with you, president obama says the debt ceiling is nonnegotiable. but republicans in congress are going to use it as a negotiation tactic. you always say that government needs to get out of the way and let businesses grow. isn't not raising the debt ceiling to pay for bills already incurred. standing in the way of the economy? >> well you know, ali, you said this, the republicans view this as a good tool to try to discipline spending. i don't think they view this as a good tool. but i think they kind of view this as pain the only tool they have right now to try to get president obama to negotiate on spending cuts. as you quite correctly said, we just live heavied through the first of these cliffs, which was the fiscal cliff. we got by that one. democrats feel they had their day there and they did, they got their tax increase. republicans are still wondering when are we going to get around to reforming these big giant entitlement programs and maybe disciplining spending on the discretion aye side, i think there will be a showdown on the debt ceiling
own country. but the humane aspects, at the very least need to be guaranteed. >> will you make this appeal directly to president obama when you see him? >> when i meet with him, i will talk to him about this issue. >> i also asked president morsi where he stands on the vital questions of peace in the middle east. will he continue to honor the peace treaty egypt has with israel? does he believe israel has a right to exist? that is coming up. why do toys for tots and hasbro trust duracell to power their donated toys? duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. . >>> welcome back to a special edition of "the situation room." my reporter's notbook on my extraordinary trip to egypt. i got to look the country's new president, mohamed morsi in the eye, and get an idea on where he stands to situations in egypt, including egypt's resolutions with israel. here is more of the exclusive interview. israel came very close to a full-scale war only weeks ago when its long conflict with the group, hamas, reigni
thomas, i'm going to ask you. why are rolling the dice on this? why do we need to be asking this question? president obama could nominate anyone for secretary of defense. our position is we do not want to roll the dice. it's dangerous to roll the dice at a critical time where don't ask, don't tell needs to be implemented fully. >> really quickly, one of the things you put out that you are disappointed john boehner has recently enacted funding for 2013. the money you spent on an ad to go after chuck hagel, are you going to spend that kind of money, that kind of capital to go after john boehner and the rest of the majority gop that still want to go after doma and enforce it where the president has said they don't want the department of justice to do this anymore and waste taxpayer money? they're going to waste taxpayer money during this time where we're all fighting and squabbling -- >> it's always been our work and our mission to hold republicans and democrats accountable. would we be placing an ad? all i can say is that right now the ad campaign that you see going on against chuck hagel i
